by supervisor farrell and cosponsored by supervisor wiener. i would like to give you a quick overview of the law. it is limited to no more than 200 conversions per year through a lottery process. to qualify occupants must live in the unit for more than three years. the 2012-13 lottery participants can bypass the 2014 lottery if they pay a $20,000 fee. a reduction of the fee by 20% for every year the building has participated in the lottery but has not been successful. where tenants to take the opportunity of a lifetime lease additional refunds can be granted. this is a basic summary of the proposal. supervisors farrell and wiener expressed their concern about opportunities for homeownership in the city in this ordinance represents a reasonable balance of goals increasing homeownership by increasing tenant protection with lifetime lease. the lottery bypass is around a decade only. sorry, just the lottery, not the bypass. the actual conversions close to 6000 units. lifetime tenant protections were consistent with -- the ellis act and the recent palmer decision. he also stating that converting t

% of the premium that is associated with that dependent. and and if as supervisor farrell said the doma is overturned and/or same-sex marriage becomes legal on a national basis we do expect that the federal irs requirements would be similar to that of the state and there would be no financial penalty and therefore, this would be moot at this point. be we would be prepared to make the payment at the end of the calendar year. so it would be for six months at first payment and if need be, then it would be for full-year in subsequent calendar year 2014. >> thank you of >> thank you >> department of human resources i want to confirm we conducted the required meet and confer process with our unions. about five of our unions and the largest were the machinists and local 21 and after asking some questions and some of them actually weren't aware of the discriminatory practices of the federal tax code, but after some good discussion they indicated their complete support. so the meet and confer process was concluded. >> thank you. any questions? thank you very much. i hope that every meet
everyone. thank you, supervisors wiener and farrell for your proposal of balanced legislation. thanks for letting me speak too. >> chair wiener: thank you very much and thank you for being honest. next speaker. >> high there. i'm a san francisco resident for 13 years. i'm a t.i.c. owner and previous renter for many years. all of my co-owners in my six unit t.i.c. were once renters also. we are not opposed to rent control. i just wanted to make that clear. the lottery system is so outdated and overburdened and with the current backlog it may be over 10 years before being eligible for conversions. we're not trying to make a quick buck because our units have lost a significant amount of value since we purchased. we're previous renters who are looking to purchase a home to have stable housing in san francisco. we contribute to san francisco and we invest in san francisco. we are all moderate income households. we include a retired gm who is a renter for many years and wanted the security of owning his own home and t.i.c. was the only affordable option for him. another co-owner is having d

farrell and appreciate the district attorney and public defender and budget analyst and all the work in our office and i know we're operating with scarce resources and we have huge demand on our efforts and skill and i want to acknowledge that moving forward. i want to thank a lot of advocates and people working day in and day out to fight against domestic violence. working with victims and their families, that work is often not recognized as it should be in the city and the contributions that you are making are great and save lives. thank you for your presence today. i have long been someone who has been try saying that the city needs to be do more to support domestic violence victims and make sure that i will support aspects of this today because of my longstanding belief that we need to do more and to acknowledge with resources, the work that is being done here. i'm not sure it should be this kind of resources and mid-year. perhaps we can make a larger am cation based on what we might approve today. so i will be supporting something and i will let me colleagues make those. i would
name is -- scott wiener and mike farrell do not represent homeowners. that's a smokescreen. they represent big developers. they promise a lifetime lease but the city attorney has admitted there are no funds allocated to enforce the lifetime lease. obviously they have no intentions to enforce it. scott wiener and mark farrell are not representing homeowners but looking to sell our city to the highest bidder. people often don't realize that civil liberties such as freedom of self-expression are connected to people's rights of housing. look at the bush administration. he was in the business of selling america to the highest bidder. we are experiencing similar in san francisco. is it any wonders who the san francisco who -- the nudity ban, the same supervise is now destroying rent control and selling san francisco. scott wiener, mark farrell are betraying the people of san francisco. they're slick republicans dressed up as democrats. we're witnessing a corporate takeover of san francisco politics. body freedom is our birth right and no one has the right to take it away, so is e
farrell and others, i think even if we were to allow the current generation of t.i.c. owners to allow them to condoize, the concern is that we would quickly replace them with a new generation of t.i.c. owners, and potentially additional real estate speculation that could lead us right back to an identical debate within a short period of time and that's fundamentally an issue that i have with this particular proposal. and i would love an initial i guess comment on that, and certainly if there are suggestions from the public on this but to me that seems to be a fundmental piece that i wish was addressed by the legislation. >> chair wiener: president chiu, that is inherently speculation, nobody knows. to believe one side or another to me is something that we should not be doing. two things that i would articulate. first of all owner occupancy rules dictate there needs to be owner occupancy for a number of years before this is to be eligible for the condo lottery. in most instances it's three years for a certain amount of tenants for larger buildings it gets more complicated. the even potentia
supervisors farrell, carmen chiu, yee, wiener and cohen, encourage you to add your names to that list of sponsors so that we can have unanimous sponsorship as this is a horrible measure. and it's very important that we speak up now about the civil liberties abuses and constitutional rights, violations happening under president obama, a democrat president so that we have the credibility to speak up later when it's republican president committing these abuses as happened in the past. and many of the members of the public don't have the opportunity to interact with someone like obama when he comes to town. they typically hide from their detractors in the public. but as representatives, you may have the chance to perhaps say a few words to obama at some point. so, when you do i hope you will ask him why and under what constitutional basis does he claim the authority to have anyone anywhere in the world at any time including u.s. citizens killed just on his say so that they are terrorists? and you might ask him when his forthcoming book, the audacity of power is going to be coming out. ple
